What the school says...

Set in an idyllic 230 acre Cotswold estate between Cheltenham and Cirencester, Rendcomb College provides a stimulating, challenging and exciting all-round education. Strong academic results are achieved and there is a full programme of sport, drama and musical opportunities for all to explore. Scholarships are available at 11+, 13+ and at 16+ and bursaries can also be applied for.

Our mission is to develop thoughtful, adventurous and academically ambitious young people who are life-long learners. We aim to prepare them with the character and skills to succeed in the ever-changing world after school. Our pupils have the freedom to experience, explore and enquire about the world around them. We aim to encourage independence and tolerance in a safe, caring community and magnificent natural environment.

Younger children regularly use the large forest school and woodland classroom facilities and outdoor education has been developed throughout the age ranges for team building and leadership training. In addition to the magnificent listed buildings that house the school's classrooms, a deer park, golf course and wilderness area are all available on site.

A new Performing Arts Centre is currently under construction and is due for completion in autumn 2016 ready for the 2016/17 academic year.

Special Education Needs

In keeping with our philosophy of catering for the individual, we provide individual tuition and support for children with mild learning difficulties. Rendcomb College will accept pupils who have specific learning difficulties provided it is confident that the pupil can access and cope with the demands of the mainstream curriculum as delivered by subject teachers. The Learning Support Department aims to provide specialist tuition in reading, spelling, maths and study skills for any pupil in the school who is in need of extra teaching at any stage in their school career. Support and guidance is given to pupils with specific learning difficulties who do not need extra tuition so that they are able to achieve their full potential.
